Harvest Year: 80’s
Type: Cooked Loose
Description: This is a very exciting aged loose pu-erh that is getting rare and rare. It’s proper name in Chinese is Tso Xian (date fragrance) Da Yeh (large leaves) Pu-erh. Just as its name implies, the fragrance of the tea is richly ripe fruity with a hint of camphor, minty coolness. Taste is deep and mellow, not strong. I found the best fragrance/taste only come from the 2nd steeping and going on for several more steepings – as the 1st steeping is more like a wakening call to it. Multi-layered and complex.
Each order is one 2oz pack of loose puerh
